Flassan, Mont Ventoux

Flassan is a very picturesque little village at the foot of Mont Ventoux. It is the ideal vacation spot for those who like to stay in nature while being close to the famous villages of Provence. It will appeal to cycling and hiking enthusiasts and wine lovers.

What makes this village special?

As the region is a center of ocher extraction, local builders use the ocher color to renovate the facades of houses. These therefore have warm hues that are pleasant to contemplate during a walk in the pretty alleys decorated with fountains and washhouses, and around Notre-Dame. This 13th century Romanesque church has an impressive transept and crypt with ancient vaults. This village is so beautiful that it attracts many painters and photographers!

Flassan is the rallying point for hikers. The trails, especially towards Mont Ventoux, are numerous and the ascent of the latter is also done by bike.
The village is also close to Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Beaumes-de-Venise, not forgetting Châteauneuf-du-Pape… renowned for their vineyards. Finally, Flassan is less than an hour from Avignon and fifteen minutes from Carpentras, two towns that it would be a shame not to visit!
